Vivica promotes holiday movie...

Here is Vivica Fox looking flawless in her morning appearance on Access Hollywood Live. She was promoting her new movie 'Annie Claus is Coming to Town' which aired December 10th on the Hallmark Channel. We kept her make up look very simple and fresh. Especially since it was High Def television, the more natural the make up...the better!

The beauty that is...Queen Latifah

I was jumping up and down when I got the call to work with mega star Queen Latifah!! I have been blessed in this industry, and I have worked with many celebrities...this was definitely more confirmation that I am on the right track. I was super nervous at first because she always looks so flawless, so I knew I had to bring my A-Game:) She was super humble, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Her skin is amazing, so it wasn't hard work for me at all. Her longtime hairstylist, Julie Baker, keeps her hair so healthy and of course her look rocked! Here's her performing at the The Trevor Live Project in Los Angeles. It was a great cause, an the turn out was crazy! Hopefully, you'll see more of my work with her:)

Chanta goes west...

My client and good friend Chanta Patton set up a shoot for herself that was absolutely AMAZING!! She enlisted her dream glam squad to shoot with photographer, Isaiah Mays, and the rest was history. Myself, and wardrobe guru Mr. Bradshaw got her ready for her close up:) She killed the shoot as you can see! Great work everybody.....I love it!!

A Holiday Treat...

Each year Hollywood kicks off the holiday shopping season with a star-studded parade along Hollywood and Sunset boulevards. This was the 80th year of the parade which benefits Marine Toys for Tots organization, and of course Ms. Fox was invited to participate!Vivica's look for this event was all her idea. She wanted color, she wanted sparkle, she wanted full on glam for this Christmas parade. She wanted to use purple in the look, but she left it up to me to make it all come together. I started out doing a smokey eye on her using the MAC Paint Artjam, then I added MAC's Blackberry and Swiss Chocolate eye shadows to warm up the look. I then took a flat brush, and added a soft touch of MAC Pigment in Lilac, on the inner corner of the lids. We did 2 pairs of lashes for added glam, NARS blush in Desire (discontinued), NARS highlight in Luster, and YSL Rouge Volupte #8 and #2 lip gloss for a pale pink pout. I contoured her slightly and we finished the look with YSL Black Waterproof liner in the water line and smudged on top. To add a little more drama, I lined the upper lid with Shiseido Creme Liner and brought it out at an angle. This looked sparkled on the red carpet! She definitely knows her stuff, and I'm so glad she wanted to go with this make up look. It made everything come together:) I thought this was a great way to showcase variety in your holiday wardrobe. It doesn't have to be red, black or silver this can light up the night in pink!:)
